How To: Pick a Scent for School in Winter

School is back in session and with all of these strong winter scents on the market, it's been hard finding a school-safe perfume that is still winter appropriate. Even though it may be winter outside, classrooms get stuffy and it may not be the best place to wear Hypnotic Poison or Black Orchid for instance. Strongly spicy, sickly sweet, and rich perfumes are not ideal for school unless you want your classmates to choke on your perfume during your entire class period. Go with something a little lighter that still fits the season.

My top picks for this Winter Quarter:

Coach Poppy Wild Flower
This fragrance arrived on the market in late July and is, in my opinion, highly underrated. This is one that hasn't got a lot of advertising and isn't very recognized in the perfume world. Upon spraying, I fell in love with it's fruity-floral notes that later dive into a soft, creamy, patchouli with lightly spicy undertones. After toning down into about 20 minutes, this is a beautiful fragrance that won't be too overbearing for class and is still a cozy winter scent.

Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir
This fragrance is an oldie, but goodie from 2011. This fragrance has captured my heart and is extremely elegant and classy. A fragrance for, perhaps, a fashion student, creative mind, or artist. It is a paradise of sweet-musky white florals. Sexy and luxurious, but also vibrant and inoffensive.

Want to try it?

La Vie Est Belle L'eau de Toilette
The original La Vie Est Belle may have been too sickly and sweet to be enjoyable in a class setting, but it's sister, L'eau de Toilette is much more appropriate in this setting. It is less rich and sticky, as the first was. It is a transformation of the original into a lighter, softer composition. Although it is softer than the original, I suggest only one spray before heading to class.
